Health Tip: Culprits Behind Stained Teeth

If your teeth aren’t bright white, the foods you eat or habits such as smoking may be to blame.

The American Dental Association mentions these potential factors for stained teeth:

  • Drinking red wine, coffee or tea.
  • Using tobacco.
  • Getting older, which leads to enamel wear and allows yellowish dentin to show through.
  • Using an antihistamine, high-blood pressure medication, some chemotherapy drugs or antipsychotic medication. Some children who take certain antibiotics also may have tooth discoloration.
